Module Three tutorial

Our Module Three session on Friday was really useful. We talked about the three ways you are reporting on your inquiry.
Written essay
Professional artefact
Oral presentation

Each of these are forms for telling the whole story of your inquiry.
They all should include why you did it what you intended to do
What happened (the data)
What, what happened (the data) told you when you analysis it and triangulated with the literature and your own Professional practice experiences.
How it has impacted on your professional practice.

The artifact is not the result of the inquiry - The artifact is another way of saying what you say in the essay. It is just a professional artifact - 'a thing' that other professionals like yourself will engage with and understand.

Holly's inquiry has been about mapping how people get jobs in, get casted etc in the Musical Theatre industry - she is thinking of telling the story of her inquiry through designing a musical(thinking about lighting design to represent understanding, and staging to represent how things emerged and moving through the steps of the inquiry. 

Tim's inquiry has been about staying healthy on a cruise ship. She noticed her peers play a lot of video games in their spare time. He is retelling the inquiry through the levels of a video game where people can power up on healthy choices (like eating a good breakfast one of the themes that emerged), and loose power when they make bad choices (like not warming up properly - one of the themes that emerged in the inquiry).

We also talked about how important it is to be able to tell some succinctly what the how inquiry was about. If you find you end the story each time at the data being collected it means you have not yet analyzed  the data. You still need to do this. The end of the inquiry is not just organizing the data it is looking at what it tells you and why, from your point of view, from your professional practice.
